The program of Alcoholics Anonymous reminds me in Step 11:
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Honestly, I haven’t followed through with this in years. Excuse: I don’t have time. Today, I made a major change in my life. I made time.
At 12:00 p.m., I have started a routine to start meditating on a regular basis. There is a meditation highly recommended by others to start: Tree of Life Spoken (Guided) Meditation for Grounding
Already I see the benefits. My blood pressure was 126/82 when I started. Afterward it dropped to 117/72. Perhaps this is a missing link in my life I’ve been searching for. Letting my mind wander, then grounding certainly clears all the crap I’m already thinking about. I definitely feel different. Now it’s all gone, I’m more relaxed and ready for the day.
